Latitude Lake Stage

I’m delighted to be back at beautiful Latitude Festival in Suffolk this weekend, having put the line up together for the Lake Stage. It’s going to be a great one! Check the line up HERE

Son Little – Your Love Will Blow Me Away When My Heart Aches

Slow Club – Suffering You, Suffering Me

I’ve been a big fan of Rebecca and Charles’ music since the first album, and now they’re back. Their passion for the intricate, their knack of flooring with the subtlest of lines and always a generous ear for melody has never sounded better on this wall of sound influenced stomper. And what a video!

Little Simz – Fire in the Booth

London’s Little Simz did a brilliant Fire in the Booth for the one n only Charlie Sloth recently on his Saturday night rap show, and proved why she’s the most exciting new rapper in the world!

How We Met; Kieran Evans

I had the pleasure of telling the Independent how I met director Kieran Evans at the Social in London many years ago. You can read about it HERE!

Mapei – Don’t Wait

I love this tune from Swedish born, New York dwelling singer Mapei.

Clean Bandit – Rather Be

The brilliant Clean Bandit were in session for me a couple of years ago now, on the strength of their excellent tune Mozart’s House. This month they release their debut album, with each track featuring a special guest. At Radio 1′s Big Weekend in Glasgow, we recorded our own tribute to the song.

George Ezra – the Ezra Express

George Ezra is a great singer songwriter from Bristol, who has this single called Budapest. He’d never been to Budapest, so decided to make the trip via train from Bristol to Budapest. I joined him for the London to Paris leg of the journey to record a Radio 1 Story which will air soon. He’s a video they made about the trip! George’s album, Wanted on Voyage, sounds fantastic and comes out on June 30th.

Real Estate – Atlas

I adore the new Real Estate album, Atlas. It’s the rhythm of rhyming guitars that does it;
